Sunday 24th February 2019.
To lead our Morning Family & Parade Service we welcomed Methodist Local Preacher Alan Beesley.
Alan spoke to us about our challenge to love our enemies, including some examples, and our need to learn to forgive. His sermon can be heard here. Alan also brought his hand puppet “Holy Moley” and used him to speak to the Children near the end of the service.
